Very weak effort by the first favourite Sherlock Holmes. Was gone before they turned to my eye.

Won't be backing him again in a hurry  :rant:


Bolts in today and I was on Aloft who broke down (after being reported as having an injured back after the Sydney Cup).  :rant:

That's the 3rd time in his last 5 starts Aloft has tailed right out......generally follows a good run, but not today.

He has also done it once in the UK.

Risky business the punt.

An All Too Hard half to everybody's favourite horse, De Little Engine, debuts at Ladbrokes Park Hillside tomorrow.

R2 #2 De Little Sister.

Mum Arapaho Miss won the 2007 VRC Oaks.

Still cannot believe that didn't win the race  :(

Does R9 #1 Iconoclasm run out 1600m with the extra 2 kg on the back?

Meets a few recent competitors worse off at the weights and there is the extra distance to travel. I had a good win on it last start but my gut feel is to stay away from the short odds tomorrow  :chin:

Well that was a spectacular Australian Steeple. The Dominator was home but fell at the one before the turn. Brought another one down. Looks like both jockeys and horses are OK.

One of the more interesting runners at Ladbrokes Hillside today is R5 #9 Regal Warrior.

Won by 7 lengths on debut for the new stable at Geelong synthetic last start. Jockey switched him off half way down the straight and it was a brutal win.

Stiffer opposition today but couldn't have been more impressive last start.

Blew like a gale and looks like it would be suited by one of those 800m races at Coffs Harbour or Gatton - there is actually an 800m feature race coming up at Coffs called the "Blinkan Missit" on Coffs Cup day. They should send it up there   :lol:

I signed up on Facebook for a FREE 2 week's selections from Deane Lester starting from today.... in the package was deposit $50 with BetEasy and get $150 bonus bet ...once you deposit $50 the offer was plus another 2 week's selections plus staking plan and speed maps with a $25 voucher from Coles ...the add ons conditional of signing up and depositing $50 with Bet Easy which I declined to do ...the result no free tips ...nothing ...as it turns out Deane tipped the first winner today but his other top selections to R5 were placed with one he rated 4th best winning R4...I rang the number of the guy who contacted me which went to voice mail but no response...it's a bookie promotion outfit which on my experience is best ignored.

I'm not suggesting Deane Lester is involved in any scam ....he's just the carrot on the hook it appears....his tips can be acessed on the net for free.

Giddy Up :beer:

Well Grunt was the first horse beaten after being delivered an extremely soft lead IMO.

He is forthwith sacked from any race that is not at Flemington.

At the risk of sounding obvious Tosen Basil looks like the one to follow out of the race.

Don't know what to make about Humidor's run. Is there any upside after his last two runs since his first up win? Starting to wonder if his Spring is over.

I think punters have to adjust some of their old punting habits with the rise and rise of mega stables.

$7.50 was available for Humidor at the jump today when only $4.00 in the early markets.....surely a tale there.

I would say it was just the run the stable wanted from him and he was hardly driven right out with the stick.

His sectional times say he was pretty good today and I'll be very surprised if there is much of race day drift in his next 3 starts....Caulfield Stakes, Cox Plate and the Mackinnon Stakes......he will certainly be getting a bit more of the stick.

Incredible improvement in Tosen Basil all the same.

Humidor a lay

.........first, thanks for the Deano link.

There was a reason for Humidor to be prepared to win first up over an unsuitable distance -- that may well have been its run for the season,  unlikely to be repeated.

Humidor won 2nd up Peter.....a nice little bonus pick up for Darren Weir and his horse.

Ever since Humidor ran Winx to a neck finish in last years Cox Plate Darren Weir believes he has the horse that can take down Winx and give him his first Cox Plate and why wouldn't he?

There will be no gut buster like last year in the Caulfield Cup.....just a carefully managed path to peak on the day.

If I owned a piece of Humidor I would have a fair degree of confidence as well.

Well, he did just repeat it. He rang 3rd beaten less than a length in a G1 :bulb:

I am feeling the Humidity

.......... my recollection is that H did not have 'form' over 1400m or at Caulfield ... ......winning at 20/1 was either a surprize or a sting. H fitted my profile of a horse over the top but prepped for a sting early (not first up)

It may just have been a pleasant surprize to all concerned and he is still a contender.

While there is no such thing as a sure thing in racing but is it fairly safe to say Oregon's Day is a good thing in R 6 at Caulfield today?

It has the strongest form by a long way and under the weight conditions looks a good thing. Roughie #8.

Well done Wily.
Absolute last time I tip.

Nothing worse when your horse is back in the field and they are jogging up front.
